Brief Summary:
The proposed research will assess the feasibility and preliminary effectiveness of a Sleep Hygiene Program for Breast Cancer Survivors. Participants will complete assessments related to sleep issues, participate in a Sleep Hygiene Program, and complete another assessment post-intervention.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Sleep Hygiene Training
The intervention will be delivered online by an occupational therapist. The intervention consists of 3 weekly sessions; each session will be 30-45 minutes long. The focus of the intervention is to teach breast cancer survivors sleep hygiene strategies to improve their sleep.
Behavioral: Sleep Hygiene Training

The intervention will last approximately 45 minutes, and will be provided once/week for 3 weeks. The intervention is delivered "live" using web-cameras (e.g., Microsoft Zoom).

Registered and licensed occupational therapists will deliver the intervention. Each week, the interventionist will guide the participant through a workbook to provide knowledge regarding sleep hygiene strategies and examples on how to apply these strategies to improve sleep quality.
